January 28 is Tobacco Awareness Day
JSU Peer Educators, Counseling & Career Services, and Sodexo Food Court will be sponsoring Tobacco Awareness Day on Wednesday, January 28.
The Peer Educators encourage everyone to come out to Tobacco Awareness Day and learn more about tobacco and its impact on our campus community.
Members of the Peer Educators and CCS Counselors will be in the 2nd floor lobby of the TMB from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with general information about tobacco as well as facts and figures on tobacco use. There will be a special presentation at 2:30 p.m. in TMB room 303 by Jessica Breazale from Concern for Children.
The Bacchus Network reports the following facts and figures at tobaccofreeu.org:
• 28.2% of college students indicated using tobacco (cigarettes, chew, or snuff) in the past 30 days. (2005 Core Survey)
• Smoking just four cigarettes can give a person a 90% chance of becoming addicted.
• Smoking causes more deaths in the U.S. than AIDS, automobile accidents, homicides, suicides, drug overdoses and fires combined.
Counseling and Career Services sponsors a variety of workshops and events designed to assist students in the career, education, and personal development. These programs are provided free of charge to members of the JSU community.
